      "Senator Honorius has raised a point worth discussing. The fact that there is a war going on should not be reason to postpone an investigation. It would imply that Senators are fair game as long as the war goes on, reason for those behind the violent death of senators to continue the war as long as possible.
      As there have been several attacks on the lives of Senators in the last couple of seasons I suggest we start to take our own security seriously right away."

        Well I figured If I announced now and waited on the beurocracy It would be voted on well after he is in the ground.

          • "Senators,

            Apparently the war has moved to its next stage while we at the Senate get only snippets of how the war is going on! This is a way of waging war unworthy of the Senate of Rome. The war will be over and Rome will have won (or Jove forbids lost) without any involvement of the Senate. Obviously this is unacceptable to any Senator. Grounds have been raised here that a black-out of information would be necessary for security reasons or that politicians should not meddle in military affairs.
            To those I say: "War is too important to be left to generals!""

            "Apart from this easy one-liner: Rome does not only have to win the war but also the peace afterwards. The question: 'what to do with Armenia?' has already been raised here but dropped. How to deal with Parthia?
            Or are we going to leave these issues to the generals as well?"

            "It is my strong opinion that the Senate should be informed by the generals Drusus, Paulus and this dark horse Rubinus who somehow suddenly got appointed.
            I would like to oblige the generals to report to the Senate directly on the developments of the war, so that the Senate can finally start to do its duty to Rome!"

            • Why? So you can blab about it to our enemies? We should not burden our commanders in the field with having to report to the Senate on all of their actions. The Emperor has done a good job on keeping everyone informed.

              As for the peace,I am confident the Emperor will keep Rome's best interest in mind when that situation arises.

              • Fellow Senators,

                I concur with senator Plinius.
                Why is the senate of Rome being left in the dark concerning the campaign against Parthia? As of yet we havn't received any feedback on the war in the east!
                You might even start to think that maybe our generals have suffered a defeat, but are too afraid to report this to us!

                Please, at least inform us of the current situation Emperor...

                  Senators of Rome,

                  Has the time come for a Senate Intelligence Committee to be formed?

                  It may be the ony way to ensure that the war is being conducted to the satisfaction of the People of Rome...

                    An excellent title. Hopefully it will not be as long as Iraqi Freedom (a war of which I just completely made up ).

                      The confidentiality of the senate has been compromised, my dear senator, the antics of Ornanes Zig and his cohorts prove this. If we gave tatical and operational infomation to the senate we might just hand it to the parthians.

                      This war is too important for POLITICIANS to mess up.

                      My friend, I think that you must be in the pay of the parthians or at least very dull witted as a man of your station should know the importance of information security.

                        Did FATE give you the option of commenting on the fellow senators' comments? If no, don't intrude. If yes (which I HIGHLY doubt he said), then have a more wiser outlook on things, unlike the now-deceased General Falco.

                        • Honorable senators, I do have a question.
                          Yes war is to Important to be left to the Generals, but victory should not be compromised for political gains do you agree?. I would say that yes I do agree the great senate does have the right to be informed and shoul be, however they should leave combat decisions to the generals on the ground, do you agree?

                          • Senators,

                            The Emperor assures you that the details will be shared with you, one and all, as soon as the Generals feel that the details will no longer jeopardize the operation or endanger the lives of Roman soldiers and our allies. The operation is young, and the Generals wish keep our troop positions, movements, and possible target objectives as secret as possible. Due to fear of dispatch couriers being intercepted, there will be a necessary time delay, and for that, the Emperor begs the Senate for it's patience.

                            Prior to his murder, Senator Titus had approached the Emperor with his intent to spend his wealth to raise an additional Legion for the war effort. He also expressed his concern about possible potential betrayal by members of the Senate. He was to share some details with the Emperor, but was murdered the day he was supposed to present them. Senator Titus was a patriot, he gave his life for Rome. Honor him, for he was a soldier of Rome.

                              • I say that some parthian mofos took him out, cause was one of the few people that was in it for the greater glory of rome, not themselves.

                                We need to fight fire with fire, we should make like covet ops squads to assinate people, god wheres falco were you need him

                                Im not gonna get involed in the war as Tiberius Falco is kinda old and pretty beat up from 4 decades of campaigns. Though it would be kinda cool to see daddy falco going into armenia and going all batshit crazy like denzel washington in "man on fire." If I could brutally tourture and excute the parthian leadership this war could be over in a month,

                                We all gotta have dreams, Right?
